Clouds: The Space In Between

Liminal Inversion

The Liminal Zone:

Liminality is the space in between, and there is no better way to show it in a visual manner, with an inversion – the boundary point where clouds meet the empty space above.

A temperature inversion acts like a lid, keeping normal convective overturning of the atmosphere from penetrating through the inversion. This can cause several weather-related effects. One such effect, is that clouds just below the inversion to spread out and take on a flattened appearance.

Inversions are a sight to behold. Above the valleys of the Lake District, with Lakes below, the conditions are ripe for such scenes. Look out for high pressure weather systems, and set-off before dawn to capture stunning views like that in the featured image.
